Summary

A supernatural journey through China reveals a haunting vision of humanity in this epic horror novel inspired by the King Solomon legends. 
 
A Southern gentleman living in Beijing, Logan Solomon’s history of shady business deals has involved him with some rough characters—some who might not even be human. Now he and his wife Li Na are embarking on a dangerous trip south with some peculiar company: an old friend from Georgia who may or may not be clairvoyant; a tattooed sociopath with glowing red eyes; and a tall man in black who loves waxing philosophic when he’s not transforming into a spiral. 
 
When Li Na goes missing in the bamboo forests of Sichuan, Solomon conjures dark forces to help him get her back—a decision that may cost numerous lives, including his own. On their journey west to find her, Solomon and the others will encounter villainous doppelgangers, whorehouse succubae, satanic congregations, secret government installations, forgotten ruins, and countless cities reduced to rubble.
